So as the Second Lockdown is announced, I decided to try to take a positive spin on it. (Don’t get me wrong, I have exhausted my 4-letter words and had a couple more glasses of wine than normal too…) .
In my current reading, I have come across the not-so-radical idea of trying to seek a positive out of a negative. And here I am trying to impart the same idea to you.
So – 4 weeks. We could focus on all the things we’re not allowed to do, or we could use this as an opportunity for a short-term focus.
4 weeks to fat loss:
Reducing your kcal intake by 3500kcal a week (that’s burning off (or eating less) 500kcal a day) can lose 1-2lbs a week. Speak with me for specific guidance.
4 weeks to perfect press ups
Review with me to check form, then we aim for your goal – 10? 20? 60 in a minute? A little work every day for the next 4 weeks could get you there (and get some great core and upper body strength in the process).
4 weeks to a 4 minute plank
Again, check form with me to make sure you get the most out of your plank and don’t do any damage, then you’re away! Try adding 10 seconds to your current time every day or every other day..and 4 mins is in sight!
4 weeks to get 20 burpees in a minute!
Average just under 3 secs per burpee…it all starts with one!
My point is, you can make this period work FOR you and use it to focus, rather than lament what we are missing out on.
We can’t control the situation but we CAN control how we react to it.
